My tolerance to spicy food has increased - I don’t eat spicy food often but some things aren’t even spicy anymore to me. Hot sauce stills burns my tongue but mild spicy foods, I can barely feel. 17 month’s postpartum, have chronic sinusitis. Cause?

In brief: Spicy foods

Sinus conditions may impair your ability to taste/smell.
Do you find your taste buds less sensitive in general? Please see your doctor. He/she may refer you to an ENT doctor. Peace and good health.
